OSHA General Industry 10-Hour Training and/or Forklift Training

10-Hour OSHA General Industry Training

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 was established to protect workers from serious and fatal injuries. OSHA was created in accordance with this act to create and enforce workplace safety and health standards with regular inspections, modifications and training information.

Ensuring your workplace remains OSHA compliant is not just for your benefit. The safety and security of your workers should always remain a top priority by having your employees brush up on critical training such as protection against blood borne pathogens, electrical safety or fire prevention in the office.

No one can ever be prepared for every disaster, but they can be trained for the ones that may affect them most.

Safety training doesn't have to be a confusing conversation, and it shouldn't stop after the first day of work. If you are a general industry employer, don't let one of your employees become a safety statistic.

Whether you work in the health care field, construction, a laboratory, or another field, Mastery has hundreds of video-based training courses available with up-to-date information and explicit direction.
